Do you have artists books in your collection that you love to love? Perhaps something by your favorite book artist or printmaker that inspires?  Join Cheryl and Jennie online Friday, January 29th for an evening of sharing and exploring artists books we love to love! This will be a casual evening of show-n-tell and socializing -- even if you don’t have a book to share, you are encouraged to attend. SFCB’s Art Book Show ‘n Tell events are a great way to learn about new-to-you books and see what other people have in their personal libraries.

Here's how it works:
Interested in sharing/showing book(s)?

By 10 am on Thursday, January 28th, RSVP for this event via Eventbrite (link is external) AND email Jennie at jennie@sfcb.org  answers to the following questions:

  •     your name

  •     the title(s) of your selected book(s)

  •     what do you find inspirational or interesting about your selected title(s)?

On the day of the event, attendees will be emailed a Zoom event link from events@sfcb.org – be sure to check your email after 10 am! During the event, Jennie and Cheryl will call on attendees to share their books, based on email responses.

Attendees who did not email responses in advance but are interested in sharing a book will be called on to present once all other attendees have finished presenting. If time runs short, only attendees who emailed responses will present.
